    Terrible start to enjoyable meal. We had a rude hostess. Couldn’t figure out what value she added to the whole experience. The restaurant was busy but not too crazy busy. There is definitely a lack of wait staff. There is however an abundance of busers. The plates were being removed before being finished yet there were no water refills. Our waiter did his best but this was not the experience I had hoped for as we were celebrating an engagement.

    Last minute reservation here as most places in town were closed. The ambiance was nice, the service was good the food was average, I had a cheeseburger and husband had the chicken, he said it had good flavor but it was a little dry, My burger was okay but not much flavor for me. The wines we had were really good, we would go back for appetizers and wine.

    The food and service were great, although menu was sparse (note, we were there on a Wednesday for lunch). The Girls Getaway cocktail was refreshing. We split the arugula salad with salmon, which was perfectly cooked, and the roasted mushroom pizza. The only annoyance was the flies. The patio was lovely but I would eat inside next time.

    The only 2 things to change: 1) Music was too loud inside the restaurant. 2) Too frequent check-ins from waitress and other staff. It's nice to linger and not feel so rushed.

    It was 95 degrees out and we were sitting indoors. No air conditioning. Doors were open and only a few window were open. It was too darn hot and you should be running the AC, setting outdoors was not a option offered, even though we requesting it. Long time customer, just not acceptable.

    We stayed at Indian Springs and enjoyed a breakfast at Sam’s. The avocado toast and breakfast scramble were delicious, and everything was house-made - you have to try the fresh habanero hot sauce! Would absolutely recommend to anyone staying in Calistoga!

    We reserved a day in advance for outside. When arriving we were told that only inside was available despite FOUR open tables outside. When we departed 2 of the four tables remained unoccupied. We will not be returning.

    Not memorable at all Expected to do a nice birthday party for my wife but the service didn’t even seem interested to help The menu was very limited and not at all what was on the site (for all day menu) . They claimed what I saw online was a weekend menu but there was no indication that this was the case

    Heard about the restaurant and decided to try it out before going wine tasting. It happened we had visitors who were in Napa for a different reason and decided to have them join us. The food and service was excellent. We booked online however upon arrival the time had changed and I wasn’t aware of it. The staff was so accommodating and we were able to be seated immediately.

    We ate her twice. Once for dinner and again a few days latter for breakfast. Food was very good. Get the dessert churros. Yummy. Service was good and the food was excellent. Sit outside if it is not too cold, it is absolutely lovely outside. The breakfast avocado toast was delicious. Bacon and eggs, and eggs Benedict were also favorites of our family. Easy walk from downtown Calistoga.

    I had dinner there two nights in a row while staying at Indian Springs. I love this place for several reasons. 1) I went by myself both nights and felt 100% comfortable and welcomed. I don't often eat at nicer restaurants on my own. If the service and ambiance was the same at it was here, I'd do it more often! 2) The food was excellent, and they have great wine list from local wineries. 3) The outdoor dining is in a very a pleasant setting.

    Lunch was great - good food and service. the setting is beautiful but they need more umbrellas. It's very hot with all that concrete so it would be nice to have more shade per table. The other thing is that a bit of light background music would be a nice touch bc it was very quiet and we could hear other tables actual discussions word for word. All in all, a very nice place to eat.

    After several visits to the area, we finally tried this highly recommended restaurant and it did not dissappoint! The ambiance was friendly and comfortable with a sun-lit hillside bathing the outdoor eating area with natural light, but not direct sunlight. A table of extremely messy kids left just after we arrived and the staff quickly returned the area to its original layout. They brought us blankets as the sun went down and turned on a heater. The food was excellent as was the wine, and it was a good value for the experience.

    They obviously had staffing issues, which is unfortunate as the food was wonderful. Customers were being turned away unless they had reservations, with an almost empty restaurant. I hope they can restaff.

    Lovely spot-very nice outdoor patio and lovely dining area indoors. The service was great. Live music was nice, and the quality of the performance was super. ..but inside the dining room it did present a challenge in trying to have a conversation without feeling we had to speak in louder than normal voices.The menu did offer a wide variety of choices. The food was prepared nicely with appealing presentation. The pricing was on the high side…Just to be aware of those prices.

    Lovely spot, with excellent service and stand out menu. There was live music on a Sunday and quick and efficient delivery of my Bloody Mary. The atmosphere is great - with inside providing a respite from the heat and outside providing a view and shaded sunshine.

    Upscale wine country restaurant with relaxed atmosphere, very good food and service, and all of that classic small town summer resort ambiance that feels like it could be in the 1950s / 60s. We dined inside for lunch, as it was 91 outside.

    The food was delicious but the service was awful--and it was not even busy at 8PM on a Monday night. We were seated outside and our server took our order and then forgot about us for the duration of the meal. Large parties around us received lots of attention, including having blankets brought to them, but the three of us could not get anyones attention when we were cold--the manager even moved our heater over to an empty table! It was like we were invisible. I called to my server two times and could not even wave at her because she never even looked at our table. No one refilled our water the entire meal. We pushed our plates to the side and sat there for at least twenty minutes after eating. I will not go there again.

    Indian Springs is an old sprawling resort. There were not a lot of signs with directions to Sams which sits upon a small hill with good parking. It was very noisy inside so we got a table outside. The menu is rather limited. My wife had the soup of the day and I had the asparagus salad to start which were very good. Since we can't have meat we both had salmon as it was the only fish on the menu. Since we live in Napa we will be back but there are better restaurants in the Napa valley for the same price.
